I’m headed to Alt! My bags are packed with lots of really fun outfits (read: black, black and more black), and since I’m probably the only blogger on the planet who has yet to own an iPad, I’ve got a good book to read on the plane, and a brand clean notebook so I can write down all the brilliant things folks have to say.

If you’ll be at Alt too, stop by my panel tomorrow morning where I’ll be speaking about work/life balance (and hopefully learning how to get even better at it from my fellow panelists!). And if you won’t be there this year but want to hear about what’s going on, my twitter feed is certain to be saturated with #altsummit tweets.

When Ryan and I were planning our wedding, we found there were surprisingly few resources for couples who wanted write their own ceremony, which is why I decided to share our wedding ceremony with you a few months ago. And though I love posting tons of visual inspiration and real wedding stories here on Snippet & Ink, I’d also love to provide inspiration for what’s really the most important part of the wedding day. So I’m calling on you to share your ceremony with us!


If you’d like to submit your wedding ceremony for a Real Wedding Ceremony archive, shoot me an email with the following:

- Subject Line: Ceremony
– Full text of your ceremony, including readings, prayers, vows songs, blessings, etc. (see my post here for a guide)
– Your wedding date and first names (optional)
– A couple lines about your ceremony (optional)


To answer some questions you might have:

- Ceremonies will not be posted on the main page of the blog, but rather will be published on their own individual pages.
– You can remain anonymous if you prefer, just let me know when you send your submission.
– Details you might share about your ceremony include: What inspired you (religion, cultural traditions, family, literature, etc.)? What was important to you for your ceremony?
– If you wrote your own vows, please only include them if you feel comfortable. Otherwise, just make note of the placement of your vows.
– I will post an announcement on the blog when the ceremony archive goes live.


Email ceremony submissions to And if you have any questions, you can email me or leave them in the comments here. Can’t wait to hear from you!

I am always so inspired by the way people come together when bad things happen, and the internet is such an amazing facilitator for action. Tomorrow I’ll be participating in a Bloggers’ Day of Silence, organized by Utterly Engaged and Ever Ours. This means no posting on Friday, as a way to bring awareness and to acknowledge the devastation in Japan.

Even if you don’t have a blog, you can participate by making a donation to Shelterbox USA. It’s so easy to feel helpless in a time like this, but every little bit counts, and with just a couple clicks you can make a difference. Together we can send some disaster relief along with our thoughts and prayers. If you want to learn more about For Japan With Love, check out these posts on Ever Ours and Utterly Engaged. Be well, friends.
